Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition where there is irreversible, progressive damage to the articular cartilage of the joint. Treatment for osteoarthritis focuses on relieving symptoms and improving function. Conservative treatment can include physical therapy, anti-inflammatories, and injections. When conservative treatment has failed, patients may be indicated for surgery which might include arthroscopic debridement of the cartilage to smooth the joint surface.
